Winston Churchill once said, “Perhaps it is better to be irresponsible and right, than to be responsible and wrong.” Orson Welles broke it down like this, “I’ve spent most of my mature life trying to prove that I’m not irresponsible.” Then Lindsay Lohan put it where the goats could get it when she spit, “I know that in my past I was young and irresponsible – but that’s what growing up is. You learn from your mistakes.”
Well playas…sometimes cats don’t learn from their mistakes until it’s way too late. On Monday Bills reserve cornerback Shareece Wright took a darn Uber from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport to the Buffalo Bills trainin’ facility in Orchard Park, New York. It was an 8 hour trip that cost the dun $632.08 and then he gave a boy another $300.00 in a tip. So he paid $932.08 to get to a voluntary workout.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! This is the type of foolishness that makes pro athletes go broke bruh!! Not only did the dun pay $632.08 for a freakin’ ride to practice but he tweeted that foolishness out for the world to see. Then one of his representatives had to correct it by tweetin’ that he forgot to tell a boy about the $300 tip. Like that made sense too.

We already know that young cats playin’ pro sports can be irresponsible but when you have duns that are representin’ you that think that it’s cool to tell a boy how financially irresponsible you really are it’s even worse bruh. It’s not like Wright is fresh outta college the dun is 30 years old and barely in the league doin’ stupid mess like that. This is his 4th team he’s been with already.
This is the NFL bruh! They don’t have guaranteed contracts and this dun is barely on the team. He just signed with the Bills in May after bein’ cut by the Ravens. Despite playin’ in 23 games with Baltimore he didn’t record a single interception. The Bills already have Ronald Darby returnin’ for his third year as their starter and they just drafted Tre’Davious White in the first round.
Now here’s some clown tryin’ to defend this dun for takin’ a darn Uber to practice. “C’mon Jay!! He’s tryin’ to make the team and by goin’ the extra mile to be at the voluntary workout shows his dedication.”
Well, what it shows is how irresponsible he is and that’s probably the reason why the dun is barely in the league now. He could have rented a darn car for a $125 and had one of his boyz drive him to camp if his flight was delayed or cancelled.
He didn’t have to pay $932.08 to get to practice. And if he’s barely on the team why is he waitin’ to the last minute to get to camp anyway? If voluntary workouts were that important to him then why was he just tryin’ to show up the night before? By the time you’re 30 you should always be factorin’ in the what if’s. That fact that he wasn’t tells you his level of maturity. I’m just sayin’
You guys think that I’m just hatin’ on this dun because he splurged to get to camp and then bragged about it. Well pimpin’ it’s called gettin’ in line to be broke. I’m not tellin’ you what I heard I’m tellin’ you what I know.
In March of 2009 Sports Illustrated published an article called “How (And Why) Athletes Go Broke” which broke down the stats on this foolishness. The joint says “that by the time they have been retired for two years, 78% of former NFL players have gone bankrupt or are under financial stress because of joblessness or divorce. Within five years of retirement, an estimated 60% of former NBA players are broke.”
Why? Because of the foolishness that I just told you that this cat just did. Do you remember a dun named Vince Young? Well he was broke and out of the league within 5 years for doin’ stupid mess with his bread and that’s the edited version. Remember when he bought every seat on a commercial flight from Nashville to Houston because he wanted to be alone and boyz thought it was cool? Remember when he bought everybody’s food in Applebee’s one night and had a bill for more than $6,000. That was cool wasn’t it? Now the dun is broke.
Go talk to former NBA players like Antione Walker and Vince Baker how cool it was to splurge all of the time doin’ ignorant and foolishness stuff with their money. I could go on for hours by why? And you can add Shareece Wright to this list in a matter of months. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Spit: verb – to say
2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
